Update 25 September 2014 I've substantially expanded Lecture 5, Color Correction. I've added 18 new slides to more thoroughly cover Hue, Saturation and Value (HSV) representation of color. In particular, the lecture now includes fast methods for computation of HSV. They are approximate but very fast. More updates to come; next will be the Fourier Lecture, Update 9 September 2014 Two slides on intensity scaling have been added to lecture 2, Digital Images and Matlab. I have added new material to...

A theoretical treatment of what can be computed and how fast it can be done. Applications to compilers, string searching, and control circuit design will be discussed. The hierarchy of finite state machines, pushdown machines, context free grammars and Turing machines will be analyzed, along with their variations. The notions of decidability, complexity theory and a complete discussion of NP-Complete problems round out the course. Text: Introduction to the Theory of Computation, Michael Sipser....

Topic: computation
In this course design and analysis of algorithms is studied. Methodologies include: divide and conquer, dynamic programming, and greedy strategies. Their applications involve: sorting, ordering and searching, graph algorithms, geometric algorithms, mathematical (number theory, algebra and linear algebra) algorithms, and string matching algorithms. We study algorithm analysis - worst case, average case, and amortized, with an emphasis on the close connection between the time complexity of an...

A collection of lectures on differential equations from MIT's Opencourseware series. This collection includes all thirty-three classes from Differential Equations 18.03, as offered at MIT during the spring of 2003. The course is taught by Professor of Mathematics Arthur Mattuck. The videos of these lectures all require Real Player, but are available in different sizes. If you would like to download or view the lectures as Mpeg's, please click here.
Includes the basics of digital logical design, computer organization and architecture including assembly language, processor design, memory hierarchies and pipelining. Students examine the detailed construction of a very simple computer. Problem sets use Beta-Sim, a RISC simulator written by Mike Wessler. A higher level view of a modern RISC architecture is studied, using the Patterson and Hennessey introductory text, from both the programmer's point of view and the hardware designer's point of...
